Comment 3 Petr Muller 2013-04-02 13:58:39 EDT
This was fixed during recent UTF-8 robustness improvements. I've included the reproducer as a new testcase, though

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 16:30:21 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
